A-Rosa has extended the end of its 2023 season and brought forward the start of the 2024 season on various ships on the Rhine and Danube.
The operator confirmed that its 2023 season will now run until 31 January 2024, not 11 January as was previously planned.
In addition, after the fleet takes a short break, 2024 sailings will begin earlier than ever before.
On the Rhine, A-Rosa Sena’s first five-night Rhine City Experience departure will now be three weeks earlier on 29 February, sailing to Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Utrecht.
As a result, four extra departure dates are now on sale prior to the original planned start date of 20 March.
A-Rosa Silva will also now set sail on 2 March 2024, with four extra departures of its four-night Mini Cruise Main & Lorelei.
A-Rosa highlights appeal of shorter itineraries
Meanwhile, on the Danube, four-night voyages will now begin from 4 March 2024.
A-Rosa Flora will start its four-night Danube Mini Cruise Cities & Wachau itinerary two and a half-weeks earlier, with four extra departures, while A-Rosa Mia and A-Rosa Riva’s four-night cruises will set sail a month earlier than originally planned.
The line’s UK & Ireland MD Lucia Rowe said: “Extending our season on the Rhine and Danube to feature even more departures offers agents an even great choice of options to sell.
“As these shoulder-season dates are four and five nights durations, they are the perfect product to promote to short break customers who want to see more cities in one trip and fancy giving river cruising a try.”
